So Much to Love About Beans
There is so much to love about garbanzo beans, the most common ingredient in hummus. However, as much as I love them (and hummus), my love for Cannellini beans is stronger. (I hope I’m not getting too personal here!) For instance, I will take a bowl of White Bean Chicken Chili over traditional red chili any day of the week. They are delicious on a salad, in pasta, and so much more. Oh my goodness, I’m drooling! I digress… Anyway, it is this unconditional love for Cannellini beans that lead me to find other ways to enjoy them.
I can’t explain why this sudden urge hit me, but it did. When that happens, there is only one thing I can do, act on it. So, into the kitchen, I went. With a few simple ingredients, I was able to create my new favorite kind of delicious white bean hummus. Now I can honestly say that I prefer it over traditional chickpea hummus. Do you think I can convert you too? Time will tell… You’ll have to keep me posted.
The Perfect Appetizer or Snack for a Casual Outdoor Fall Gathering
Or for that matter, any gathering at any time of the year!
There is nothing I love more than a casual outdoor fall gathering. (Even though I just expressed my love for Cannellini beans in the opening paragraph… My heart is big y’all, there’s a whole lot of room for lots of love!) Anyway, I am I’m all about casual entertaining. Jeans, sweaters, flannels, boots… yes, yes, yes, and yes!
I want you to feel at home when you’re at my home. Therefore, when we decided to have some family and friends over to the farm to celebrate all things fall, I wanted it to be a casual gathering. Creating this new white bean dip seemed perfect for the occasion! It’s so easy to make and filled with delicious flavor.
What you Need to Make Delicious White Bean Hummus
- Cannellini beans (Yum!)
- Fresh lemon juice
- Coriander seeds
- Sea salt
- Olive oil
- Fresh parsley
How to Make Delicious White Bean Hummus
First, roast the unpeeled garlic cloves in the oven at 400 degrees for 15-20 minutes. Allow them to cool for a few minutes before peeling off the outer paper of the cloves.
While the cloves are roasting, heat a skillet over medium-high heat on the stove. Add the coriander to the hot skillet, shaking them every few seconds until they begin to crackle and turn reddish-brown for about 1-3 minutes. Immediately transfer the spices to a plate to cool.
Next, in a food processor or a blender, add the garlic and pulse until minced. Scrape the side of the bowl and add the beans, tahini, lemon juice, coriander, and 1 teaspoon of sea salt. Pulse until smooth, scraping the side of the bowl occasionally. With the food processor or blender running, add the olive oil. Season with salt to taste.
